Transitioning to Cooler, Wetter Weather (Eventually)

Air Quality Report (As of 6:00am)
Good to moderate for all reporting areas.

Weather Story: The weather will now transition from a warm and dry period to a cool and wet period. Soak up the warmth while you can on Wednesday!

A stronger, wetter trough of low pressure will dig down the West Coast on Friday. It will likely push a cold front through our area that will be accompanied by rain. Showers could linger into Saturday and there is a slight chance of an isolated thundershower. Another weather system will move in on Monday or so. Temperatures will be much cooler starting Thursday/Friday and will likely remain that way next week.


Wednesday: Mostly sunny with a few high clouds passing through. Warmer, with coastal highs in the mid 60s to low 70s and mainly low 70s for inland valleys.

Overnight: Mostly clear and chilly. Lows in the 30s to low 40s on the coast with 20s to 30s for inland locations.

Thursday: Chilly in the morning. Mostly sunny early, then low clouds returning to the coast late in the afternoon. Fog possible. Much cooler with coastal highs in the upper 50s to low 60s—60s to around 70ºF inland.

Extended: 
 A weather system will then move in on Friday and could linger into Saturday with scattered showers and much cooler temperatures. Another system will follow late Sunday into Monday with a better chance of rain. An even wetter-looking system should arrive mid-week next week!
